Mare, the ICO-inspired VR puzzle adventure, can be played via eye tracking only in its upcoming PSVR 2 port.

Initially released in 2021, Mare is a third-person VR puzzle adventure where you embody a mysterious artificial bird and guide a young girl across a mysterious dungeon using motion controllers.

Mare’s adherence to its inspirations steals some of the power behind its pathos but, as a sensory experience, there’s nothing else quite like it in VR. Its light puzzling clears the way for a powerfully atmospheric and deliciously ambiguous adventure that is there to drink in more than it is play through.

Mare arrives this fall on PSVR 2, and it’s available now on Quest and Steam.
